    Default Citroen AX Engine Transplants

    Hi All,

    Advertisement


    Just wondering if anyone knows what engines (that are available down here) would be suitable for a easy-ish transplant into an AX?

    My brief research has led me to believe that 1.) The AX has a TU series engine; and 2.) The 205 SI, 306s, 405s, etc. all have a XU series engine and are therefore unsuitable for a transplant.

    Is this correct?

    Cheers.

    PS Is the 1.4 GT"i" we have in AU what they labelled the "forte"?

    Any TU series engine from 950 cc to 1600cc, petrol or diesel will fit.

    Of course, the electrical stuff may be a bit different....

    XU series engines are very much bigger & heavier, and wil not even fit in the engine bay, let alone in the engine mountings!

    Thanks for the answers.

    I am just toying with the idea of an AX GT with a bit more than the standard 85hp. I guess similar to a 205 Mi16.

    Gezza, was the XU mod you saw a 16V?


    Cheers.

    I thought it might have been 8v...

    However, what would stop one sticking a 206 TU5 engine into an AX? Or how about whacking the 206 head on the AX 1.4 block?

    Just wondering...
